this is a special part of the country for me. i actually can recall the big four carriers on lake michigan. nice to see them from time to time. they pulled iron from the north throughout the entire region. one that manufactured oils such as building cars, tractors, trucks and machinery, so did the ship errs, miners and support industries. as a result of the great lakes area, it it flourishes really was a good lesson in how we've come to learn to need each other. that is industry from the states and throughout interdependent. clearly, job retention and job creation are foremost in everyone's minds today. of our president, to the state capital, jobs are the most pressing need. i give you my view on this issue, speaking as the ceo for the company and i do serve on a number of our corporate boards. one of the ways we enhance the value of said 10 to our shareholders is too careful allocation of capital. so we must provide capital businesses that can escrow. the growth is either limited or declining. we have to make discipline investments. and generally, only the very best projects go forward. they're

. >> thank you. the chair now recognizes the gentleman from michigan. >> thank you chairman and chairwoman. the problem it faces obvious. there is too much government spending, too much federal debt and impeding our economy's ability to grow. as a result, too few private- sector jobs are being created. we know it and the american people know what. a quick look at the facts shows this committee has their work cut out. there were zero net jobs created in the month of august, roughly 40 million americans out of work, and the unemployment rate continues to hover around 9%. the total debt for fiscal year 2010 reached 93.1% of gdp and it is growing at an astronomical and unsustainable rate. by the end of this fiscal year our debt will exceed our g.d.p. and according to expert testimony before the simpson- bowles commission, this has already cost us 1 million jobs. these problems have been decades in the making. frankly, both parties have refused to enact many of the necessary and well-known solutions. simply put, washington has over- promised and under-performed. as a result, this committee will
